The host and namesake of Fox Business Network’s “Making Money With Charles Paynesat down with New Jersey Monthly to discuss the benefits of dressing for success.

There’s some common-sense stuff that’s just not being taught in high schools… A little thing like dressing right goes a long way.

Fusion’s Mariana Atencio wrote a first-hand account of how student activism inspired her to be a journalist. Mariana will be participating in Fusion’s RiseUp summit next Wednesday.

Every time I’m in the field as a correspondent, whether it’s in Ferguson or Hong Kong, I see a reflection of my younger self in the students who are putting themselves at risk by standing up to power and shouting “enough already!”

I talked with one CEO who told me he is backing this clinical trial where you insert a semiconductor chip or sensor into your blood stream and your phone will call you  two weeks before you’re suppose to have a heart attack to say you are going to have a heart attack and you need to go see the doctor

CNN Departure Lounge Clears Out

Last Friday saw the departure of another group of laid off CNN employees. They are part of the 300-person workforce reduction at the news channel which began last month. Many employees stayed on to help through midterm election coverage. Insiders tell us another group will be making Nov. 21 their last day, while still another wave will depart on Dec. 19.

Among those saying goodbye last Friday, CNN.com host Jarrett Bellini who’s been with the network more than 10 years. Atlanta-based Bellini, the younger brother of Wall Street Journal senior producer Jason Bellini, was looking forward to going pants-less this week.

Among the big names departing the DC bureau, is Michelle Jaconi, a 12-year NBC News veteran who moved to CNN in 2009 and has been producing special projects for the last several years. “By the end of my time here, my telephone had become the equivalent of the Red Phone. More often than not, it was someone from the top of one of the Turner totem poles needing me to lead a pressing new project,” Jaconi wrote in a goodbye memo.

And as CNN right-sizes , the network continues to fill some slots. Molly Shiels, the coordinating producer for Maria Bartiromo‘s show, left FBN for CNN where she will be coordinating producer for Brian Stelter at CNNMoney. She started yesterday.

Behind the TV Scenes: Gary Schreier

Gary Schreier

This summer, we’re putting a spotlight on the industry’s top producers; getting the inside story about their shows, how they got to where they are, and advice they have for future TV journalists.

For more than two decades, Gary Schreier has covered some of the biggest news and business stories in America and around the world. “I think it’s been an extraordinary 15 to 20 years,” says Schreier, who started at CNBC, followed by 16  years at Fox News and Fox Business. Now, back at CNBC as EP of “Closing Bell,” Schreier reflects on a wide-ranging career.

TVNewser: You’ve produced for general news and business news. How have you approached producing for the different types?

Schreier: Production is never just production. You always want to think about it hard and how to make the story bigger on television than it would be if you were reading it in print — digitally, online, or a newspaper — or on radio certainly. I think sometimes the difference between general news and business news is general news can lend itself where the production isn’t as important; the story itself can be so compelling, and the pictures so compelling that it just presents itself. Where as business news, say even during a financial crisis, you need to think harder on how to represent things. Business news can tend to be a lot of numbers, a lot of statistics, and you need to break those down and present them in a form that’s much more acceptable to the people. So, it’s a little more challenging, but I find it fun too. It makes you think harder, it makes you work a little harder, and if you can distill something that’s hard to understand with a lot of numbers and stats and bring it down to a level where people kind of crystallize it and get it and helps them make a good, informed decision for their life, and for their money, and for their finances, it’s kind of rewarding.
